      The buns were warm when purchased, fresh from the oven we had to leave the bags open. Thanks cake shop

    They definitely are good there but sadly this year it’s not very well organized – waited over an hour and people’s tempers were running low. Will have to definitely think about just getting them at the supermarket next year….

    Awesome Buns….. I was in and out this morning loved the friendly service but I do understand how others would feel because the line was very long and the traffic well lets just say people were talking about calling the police, but they should know EVERY year it will be rammed around there.

      Also to that fact it’s not like it’s an everyday occurrence. One day out of the year???? really????…Knowing that it’s going to be busy one should allow themselves just a bit of “extra time” just in case……

    I guess this is a sign of the times, when people queue up to BUY buns. I guess I am just an old school fool but we are losing the traditions of baking and cooking. Store bought? Not for me, but each to his/her own.

    Just make your own! No line.

      Tried it a couple of times. Ended up with “Rock Cross Buns”! So unless people are willing to lose a tooth, I’ll be in that line next year!

    I agree with James….Ma is 76 and with trembling hands she can still produce a good pan of buns….sadly her daughter (my sister) is captured in the pic above!
